[Protest of Army Corps of Engineers Contract Award for Excavation Work]
B-236117: Nov 6, 1989
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Army Corps of Engineers contract award to another firm for excavation and construction, contending that the awardee's bid was nonresponsive because it failed to inspect the job site and could later submit a claim based on its alleged misunderstanding of the requirements. GAO held that the protester failed to show how the awardee took exception to any of the requirements or that the awardee's failure to inspect the site impacted its bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
